    I also was diagnosed with triple negative bc 2 1/2 years ago. I do not recommend anything to do with much sugar. The problem is we rely too much on sugar and it is very acidic. Cancer loves an acid environment so my belief is you are not helping yourself by rewarding oneself with sugar treats. Also there are other ways of dealing with nausea other than more drugs-acupunture can help with pain and nausea. I am one of the few who did not indulge with chemo but I did have radiation with a naturopathic protocol and I had zero side effects from that. Do yourself good by surrounding yourself with good healthy food-instead of shakes try juicing veggies with some fruit-it is healthier and better for you. Please try to get rid of the sugar treats and remember what Hipprocrates once said "Let food be thy medicine"-he did not mean shakes or hard candy either.

    You are so right on about the sugar , even meat is acid forming! I read that thisTriple negative type feeds on fat? Sill researching that. Running out of things to eat Living on veggies, and fruit even though I'm even wondering about the high sugar content of some fruit. After eating any meat I'm drinking lemon water or baking soda water (aluminum free baking soda ) to try to stay alkaline- also plan to purchase ph strips to keep a close watch on ph level. ( I noticed in hospital when my Granddaughter was in a guarded health crisis- they were pumping Sodium bicarbonate into her IV-(BAKING SODA) it worked and she lived! PH levels are crucial to your health.
    We have to try to do out part to regain our health- I'm trying to be pro-active all the way. May God bless you all to keep strong and never give up. We have to keep trying til something works!
